I left the lid off the porcelain teapot so I could watch the leaves brew. It’s a beautiful tea. The leaves sink. On first sip, I questioned how often I would want to drink this kind of pungent, heavy Chinese green. Told myself ‘whatever, don’t bother with that thought now’ and continued brewing. As I sit here after the fourth steep, I realize this tea is incredible (well, I thought that after the second steep) and strikes some kind of note within me. It’s balanced. It didn’t upset my stomach. I am tea high. Togo — thanks.
